Nitrous Oxide

Some patients are given nitrous oxide/oxygen, or what you may know as laughing gas, to relax them for their dental treatment. Nitrous oxide/oxygen (a blend of two gases, oxygen and nitrous oxide) is given through a small breathing mask which is placed over the patient’s nose, allowing them to relax, but without putting them to sleep.

For children, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recognizes this technique as a very safe, effective technique to use for treating children’s dental needs. The gas is mild, easily taken and quickly eliminated from the body with normal breathing. It is non-addictive. While inhaling nitrous oxide/oxygen, your child remains fully conscious and keeps all natural reflexes. 

Conscious Sedation

Conscious Sedation is recommended for apprehensive children, very young children and patients with special needs, and patients who are anxious about their dental treatment. It is used to reduce the anxiety or discomfort associated with dental treatments.  Patients may be quite drowsy, and may even fall asleep, but they will not become unconscious.

There are a variety of different medications, which can be used for conscious sedation. The doctor will prescribe the medication best suited for your overall health and dental treatment recommendations. We will be happy to answer any questions you might have concerning specific drugs prescribed by Dr. Withrow and look forward to working with you to create a healthy, happy smile.
